comment Preserving search engine rankings when old domain name is lost
@closetnoc I wish we could just renew. The old domain is with the previous business owner and they are refusing to renew or transfer it. Business issues you and me don't want to get involved in :-) I'm a web developer and will do everything technically possible until the old domain is recovered back. There's also a possibility that we don't get access to the old domain at all. Thanks for all the help guys.

@DocRoot yes definitely getting the old domain back is a priority now and once we get it back we'll implement proper 301 redirections. Unfortunately, I don't know how long before we get the domain back. Thanks again for your help.

We're on that already contacting everyone but I just hoped there would be a faster or more robust framework to handle such cases. Thanks for the pointers.

@DocRoot thanks for the pointers. Google is starting to drop the old pages one after the other from its index. Are you telling me that even if we take back control of domain A there's nothing we can do as the rankings are gone? Thanks.

@closetnoc the domain expired a few days ago and the domain registrar is showing ads on it until the old owner renews it or it is automatically dropped in around 30 days.

Thanks for the pointers. However, site A is completely gone as its domain expired. I also deactivated it from our server. Site B went live after site A was gone so I think we're in a good situation with Google but we're starting from scratch for the new domain :-(

Thanks @dan. I checked the related questions but it's title was misleading and also there's no solution or any pointers there. Hopefully we'll get some here.

Do you have an idea if providing quality content that Google appreciates speeds up the process? Thanks.

comment Can you create rich websites (more than just text) using Google Sites?
I don't have access to the sites to give details. However, in general, scripts and fiddling with HTML will be blocked in the WYSIWYG editor and you'll have to use the WYSIWYG buttons to insert images (make sure you check all the buttons there after you set your cursor inside the WYSIWYG) and also in other tabs of the editing interface. Good luck.

comment How can I simulate a slow connection for page load?
@pelms both your comment suggestions should be combined into an answer. I think they fall into the "quick and dirty" solutions that, well, everyone likes :-)
